RIL has completed its Ethane project including commissioning of its ethane receipt & handling facilities and ethane cracking at its Dahej Manufacturing facility in Gujarat in a record time of less than 3 years. The execution of this project at this scale and magnitude is a first in the world.

It was the first company globally to conceptualize large scale imports of ethane from North America as feedstock for its cracker portfolio in India. The project involved seamless integration of several elements across a complex infrastructure value chain.

This includes securing ethane refrigeration capacity in the US Gulf coast, delivery of dedicated Very Large Ethane Carriers (VLECs) to carry ethane from the US Gulf Coast to the West Coast of India, construction of ethane receipt and handling facilities, pipelines and upgrade of crackers (to receive ethane) at Dahej, Hazira and Nagothane Manufacturing facilities.
